Dejima, Nagasaki
(3.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1634 in order to segregate foreign traders and to discourage any chance of spreading Christianity, Dejima once allowed the Japanese a glimpse into the Western world. Today, the area attracts tourists with its vibrant scene of Japanese and foreign restaurants, bars, and stores. Take a walk down the boardwalk and enjoy a mesmerizing sunset, or watch sailboats and yachts embellished with colorful lights, which look magical in the evening. While there, you can also visit a local museum displaying artifacts related to Nagasaki's rich trading history. Arrange your visit to Dejima and discover more family-friendly attractions in Nagasaki using our Nagasaki trip itinerary planner.

  • Aiming at night, near the fish taverns, went by tram. Shop was good, but amazed at the beauty of the night. It is ideal for dating. And not many people.

  • It is recommended to relax overlooking Nagasaki Harbor as stylish cafes and restaurants, sunny day.

  • Pretty cool. If you're interested in history it's worth a visit. It's almost all reconstruction but it gives a good idea as to what it would have been like. It's not quite finished yet, so there's a little building work still happening. On the other hand, it is very very cheap and extremely unique, so it's worth visiting once.
  • Uninteresting and hot buildings with no place to sit. You might love it if you are a history fan and can read japanese
  • It is a nice historical site for knowing the history of Japan and how Japan related to foreign countries.
  • Very interesting open air museum about the dejima island with reconstructed Dutch houses. Most exhibits have an English description.
  • The entrance fee is worthwhile to pay. You can know more about the rule of Tokugawa from visiting this place.
